Where We Live

Mrs Macushla by TKB

Dates: 20 Mar - 21 Mar

Show Time: 6.30pm

Tickets: €12

The Macushla Ballroom was situated like the stem of a shamrock between Foley St, Amiens St and Buckingham St in the bruised but not broken heart of Dublin’s North Inner City. Once a dance hall haunt in a Dublin long gone, it went on to become a Bingo Hall that was almost as cherished by locals as the late, great inner city hero Stephen Gately, until its closure in the mid 90’s.

Gertrude Kelly was given one true purpose in life, to be a bingo caller at the Macushla. When she’s up there? She’s untouchable. All her memories and her scars, they dance away into the stars. As this immersive, (melo)dramatic game of bingo progresses, Gert’s story begins to fray.

Featuring the songs of Dame Shirley Bassey.

Company Philip Connaughton presents MAMAFESTA MEMORIALISING (To not forget or be forgotten)

This month critically acclaimed choreographer Philip Connaughton brings his beautiful, sparkling, laugh-out-loud meditation on the fear of forgetting and of being forgotten to Cork and Dublin venues. Mamafesta Memorialising, which enjoyed its successful international premiere in France last year, is woven from inspirations including musical theatre, Bruce Forsythe’s Generation Game and most importantly, Philip’s mum Madeleine, who has senile dementia. Philip made his last piece, Assisted Solo, about her. But it wasn’t enough. He still has more to do and more to say. He’s worried that what’s happening to her will happen to him. His latest testimony to an ever-evolving,…
